Snowy Rattlesnake Ledge Trail

Back in March we were in the Seattle area to visit family. We went for a little hike in the mountains west of the city, on a trail that leads to Rattlesnake Ledge. It had snowed the night before, and it made for a uniquely beautiful hike in the rain forest.
The snow and moss-covered trees were an unusual combination.
The trees in this part of the world are so different from the dry pine forests where I live.
It was so damp that the lens started to fog up, which made for a couple of interesting photos.
This is part of Our World Tuesday, and certainly qualifies for the weekly theme of "beautiful" over at Tina's PicStory.

  1. Splendid snow - the temperature has finally reached a normal may level here today. So, with a bit of luck snow will be here soon!

  2. That looks so like the country where we used to ski above the temperate rainforest of the Victorian Alps.
    The snow was wet and the wildlife prolific. Love your shots and the memories they invoke.

  3. I've never been to the NW, but my daughter told me I'd love it there. The moss on the trees is unbelievable-with snow or without! It looks as if there should also be unicorns wandering through the forest. Thanks for sharing!♥♫

    I see that you like so much to hike in the mountains. It's really very good to the body and for the spirit too.

  8. It is beautiful. I noticed right away that you didn't include any Seattle pictures in your blue skies post (LOL!). But all three states from that post and this one are winners in my book and really point up the differences from one part of our big beautiful country to another!

  25. Hahaaa...there's always lots of moss on the trees in winter, here. Even in the snow. This looks just like the forests of my childhood. Lovely photo.
